Note: Just realized the original headline for this post, "Foster out of cast", made it sound like Big Dave was booted out of a reprisal of "Hello, Dolly!" That has been amended.
Injured Utah center David Foster had his cast removed Wednesday, nearly two months after he underwent surgery for a broken bone in his right foot.
Foster, a senior, injured his foot in the Utes' exhibition loss to Adams State on Nov. 4. He was originally projected to be out six-to-eight weeks, but since then coach Larry Krystkowiak has said Foster is considering either redshirting this season or returning for the end of conference play.
Krystkowiak did not know Wednesday where Foster was in his progress, other than to say having the cast removed was a major development and that he would be evaluated.
Foster led the Mountain West Conference with 3.2 blocks per game. He was considered the most important player as the Utes made the transition to the Pac-12, and teammates talked openly about his improved offensive play. But Foster's season lasted only six minutes.
Foster has one year of eligibility remaining, if he chooses to use it.
